Jim Harbaugh: San Francisco 49ers New Head Coach
Jim Harbaugh has agreed to a 5-year, $25 million deal to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN.
The announcement comes in the wake of reports that Harbaugh had narrowed his choices down to two destinations. It was believed Harbaugh would either pick the 49ers, or remain with the Stanford Cardinal.
The new 49ers head coach will replace Mike Singletary, who struggled to unify the team. Harbaugh will bring leadership and tolerance to the program, and his recent successes with Stanford were the perfect audition for the position.
Stanford's impressive blow out victory of Virginia Tech in the Discover Orange Bowl only boosted Harbaugh's resume, and producing a future No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft shows Harbaugh can contribute to any program.
The 49ers now seem to have a lot going for them. They play in the weakest division in the NFL, and just a few tweaks of the offense, coupled with the addition of Harbaugh could be all the franchise needs to return to the prominence they have experienced in the past.
The new era in the Bay Area is drawing instant comparisons to the Joe Montana dynasty in San Francisco, and it appears the time is now for the 49ers to find a QB and make a run.
